A Call to Arms
I am 62 years old and currently am living in West Seneca, NY. I've been a musician (guitar) for 40 years and have always been artistically inspired. I started painting abstract almost in early 2018, but had done many pencil drawings previously, years ago. I work in acrylic, sometimes with watercolor. The feeling I get when I am initially starting the painting is a kin to a dream state. Often, I should stop but continue on, losing the original concept. I love color, especially the color in nature. The blurring of color in a butterfly wing, the eye of a dragonfly, a pheasants feathers...are my inspirations. I look at the world and see God as the artist. A clear blue sky with the green leaves of a tall tree touching it has been something that nearly hypnotizes me at times.
